Doctoral Study Program

Faculty of Informatics of Masaryk University seeks new PhD students in various areas of Computer Science and related interdisciplinary fields. The list of PhD supervisors provides a more detailed overview of all currently available topics for PhD studies.

The Doctoral Study Programme is designated for graduates of master's programmes. Primarily, it concerns the field of informatics, applied informatics, or related programmes. Having taken the state doctoral examination, and successfully defended their doctoral thesis, graduates receive the “doctor” title (Ph.D., to be added behind their name).

Currently, the faculty possesses accreditation for a four-year PhD study programme Informatics consisting of two study fields Informatics and Computer Systems and Technologies both available as a full-time study and combined study mode, either in Czech or English.

The faculty supports students through its technology equipment necessary for their work, facilities they have available, as well as financially. Collaboration established with other institutions (Czech and foreign) and support from grant agencies allow students to take part in expert conferences, summer schools and complete a part of their studies abroad.

The PhD Study Programme takes 4 years (standard length) up to 8 years (maximal).

In an addition to the general call for doctoral students, the Faculty announces the following special calls for open PhD positions with special funding starting in the Autumn 2018 term. This special funding is provided by research projects, industrial projects, and Faculty departments. The interested candidates are, besides submitting all the required documents for the following special calls by their respective deadlines, still obliged to pass the standard admission procedure (deadline May 25, 2018). This competition is open to eligible candidates from all countries, and specifically also for the study programmes in English. The details can (and should) be consulted with the contact persons.

Candidates whose interests do not fall into the areas of the special calls below are encouraged to contact their potential supervisors directly and discuss the funding possibilities individually.
